    Wheres Icarius carded?

    Howdy, I just realised we havent seen Icarius Carded yet, From memory we have usually seen the figures carded and Bios well before this, we only have 4 weeks til he 'launches' (pun Intended!).

    I wonder what the hold up is? Im so curious to see how he is melded into the Bios!

    Who knows. Maybe the test batch that they recieved had an error like bad paint ap or reverse shoulders. Didnt they have some delay like that happen in the past?

    Yeah we haven't seen any pf the remaining 2011 figures carded and historically we should be seeing the January figures and bios sometime in October so maybe we will see them at Power Con.

    Maybe he's been delayed because they're actually trying to give him a crotch that won't limit his legs movements ?

    Just hoping it's the case. But with Mattel, I'm not holding my breath...

    Yes, exactly. And Bow's legs movements (juts like Hssss's) were hindered by the kind of crotch he got.

    I'm totally entitled to collect the line the way I want, to be siletimes happy and sometimes not, and to express my opinion. This is what a forum is all about, so please learn how to deal and live with it.

    what kind of poses are you trying to put them in? and what is so different about the movement of those vs the furry underwear types?

    im really asking here, b/c i have had no problems putting Bow and Hsss in the same positions as the furry shorts folks

    The problem comes from the forward/backward legs movement. Bow and Hssss are totally unable to deliver a straight, front kick. Or to sit, for that matter.

    I bought Bow and Hssss, but I was unaware of that problem. No more "limiting crotch" for me, now. I'll pass on characters getting that kind of crotch.

    well really none of the MOTUC can sit and im pretty sure none can really do a um front kick and I have no idea why the guy with a jet pack and rockets would need to do a um front kick.

    kind of seems like you are reaching for things to be angry with. I have been on the org for a long time, I have never heard a complaint about these figures not being able to do a um front kick.

    Im pretty sure when they designed these figures a um front kick was not part of the plan

    I at least can understand peoples complaints about BGEL and the dials on the figure, but I cant wrap my head about the um front kick "issue"

    I'm happy your "happiness criteria" with an action figure are so low that you don't need them to be able to raise their legs forward or sit...

    However, that is not my case. I mean, a vast majority of vintage figures (vintage NA figs, vintage X-Men figures etc.) are able to do this (front kick, basic sitting pose). So I just won't accept movement impairment or restriction from an "adult collector" line which boasts to have great articulations.

    Vintage Icarius had all of his articulations working perfectly. I expect just the same from MOTUC Icarius.

    It is true that MOTUC figures usually don't have a wide sitting or forward kicking ability. But at least, with the traditional furry shorts, it is still possible to achieve this to some extent. Hssss and Bow, on the contrary, can't "perform" this kind of simple movement. And from what I was able to see, it is VERY apparent and obvious Icarius will have the same kind of crotch as King Hssss and Bow. I'm waiting eagerly for his preview (IF we get it in time), but I feel he'll have movement problems, unless the plastic is very soft.

    kind of seems like you are reaching for things to be angry with.
    And it kind of seems like you cannot accept that some people may have another opinion than yours, or other quality standards and criteria for their adult collector figures... I SHALL voice my opinion when I'm happy AND when I'm not with the figures. I was happy with Man-E-Faces and (to a lesser extent) with Megator. But for Icarius, it's a totally different matter.

    as you say, you can voice your opinion and shall voice mine.

    and i made it pretty clear I think the front kick "issue" is silly.

    and Ill drop the issue at that

    I would imagine he will be carded at Power-Con, similar to how Catra was shown carded at C2E2

    Agreed. I wasn't really excited for this character prior to SDCC, but the figure looks pretty slick.
